If you are looking for support or to report bugs, please see the sourceforge page
RTES is a crossplatform library designed to make implementing a terminal emulator significantly easier. First a list of terminals currently emulated. Please note that those marked with * are currently in progress and can be found in the current CVS and not necessarily in the last release of RTES.
But why use RTES? You'll want to use it because it does for terminal emulation what RB does for programming: frees you up from trivial concerns so you can focus on what's unique to your program. At the heart are the following abstract classes:
contains the core of routines needed to emulate a terminal display including
drawing routines. It supports the following features:
AbstractTerminalCommunicator contains the core of routines needed to communicate with a remote terminal. This is currently in planning stages and we hope to provide a common interface to support both modem and telnet connectivity.
